Veteran Bollywood actress Zeenat Aman has been felicitated with lifetime achievement award for her immense contribution to cinema at the DC South Asia Film Festival (DCSAFF).

The 65-year-old diva was presented with the honour by the Indian American philanthropist Frank Islam. “This evening is exceptionally memorable,” Zeenat said as she accepted the award at the conclusion of the sixth annual film festival on September 8. Islam praised Zeenat for inspiring women across all ages through her performances on the silver screen. “Zeenat, you defined girlhood and womanhood for generations of South Asians. Young and old alike cried when you cried on screen, and they laughed when you laughed,” he said in his keynote address at the awards ceremony.

The event also saw Zeenat’s son, Azaan Khan, being recognised with the rising star director award for his upcoming film Bankster, which features Naseeruddin Shah. —PTI
